And this is where my major gripe is with the whole pan thing in Trinidad.

When I was on holiday in 1996, I bought the Panorama video and even back then, the very first advertisement on the video was an advertisement for Panyard, Inc. based in Akron, Ohio so I wrote a stinging letter to Pan Trinbago, NCC and the three major newspapers at the time so it is no surprise to me that they are still "up and running" today.  Claude has seen a copy of the article but I'm useless at uploading so Claude, do your thing.

Why was I hearing about Panyard, Inc. on a video which I bought in the land of pan.  This needs to stop!!!

Shame & Scandal in We Trini Family to let this "golden opportunity" yet escape us in the Pan Mecca of T&T.  We need to re-focus our forces and effort at home, to re-energize the need to monetize for the benefit of pan and not let it escape us, which would provide an alternate sustainable industry to "fuel" our economy and boost our foreign exchange reserves.  

There is absolutely no way in earth that we could not or should not compete with Pan Yard in our own Back Yard.

Under PanTrinbago's leadership and guidance, we can assemble all the forces to produce a superior instrument for the markets at home and abroad.  Yes, it will not be easy, but cake walks are never that way and it's in our clear advantage and distinct benefit to do so.After all, good ideas often start with a vision and the mission is to make the dream happen, ent… Respect!!!
